Yes. Most "users" either aren't aware, forget about the existence of it, or don't want to mess with kernel experimental. And most of the time, they'd be right. The Lenny freeze is causing an exception to the usual rule. I personally think both kernels should be is the "main" experimental section, or even in Sid. But I am not a Debian Maintainer.

Given the number of bug reports the kernel packaging team deals with, I
can understand why they might not want to make it too easy to get a hold
of experimental kernel builds.

Besides the more testing there is of the lenny kernel before release,
the better.

Exactly. That's why 2.6.27 should be more mainstream. To reiterate the thoughts of millions of right-thinking people, 2.6.27 should be the "official" Lenny kernel. Or at least be packaged alongside 2.6.26 in the final distribution as an alternative.
